Ricky is a handsome six month old male Labrador mix and quite a character. He came into our shelter along with her best pal, Lucy. Lucy is the more outgoing of the two, and helps to make shy Ricky feel more confident. It would be nice if they could be adopted together, but not necessary. They love playing together, but also enjoy romping with the other rambunctious pups in their playgroup. Ricky’s nickname is “The King”, because we had to use a wagon to wheel him outside for playgroup when he first arrived. He was too frightened and shy to walk, and too heavy for volunteers to carry. Soon, however, it was obvious that Ricky enjoyed his chauffeured rides outside. He would wag his tail and smile at all the other dogs in their kennels as he rolled by. Quite proud of how well he had trained all of us humans! Ricky is a very affectionate puppy once he gets to know you. He still needs some training but is eager to learn and very treat motivated. Because of his large size and energy, we feel Ricky would be most suited for a family with older children. He is a dog that requires plenty of exercise and attention. Daily walks and active play sessions will need to be part of his daily routine. A fenced in yard would help him burn off some additional energy.
